Looking back on 55 years of land conservation

In 1962, a group of naturalists in southern Ontario was alarmed by development activities that they saw encroaching on important habitat for plants and animals. Recognizing that this was not just a local, but a national, issue, they created the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) to acquire and protect land under threat.
